Honda to unveil hybrid CR-V in Paris

Petrol-electric model offered in both front and four-wheel drive.

A hybrid version will be among the new Honda CR-V range at the Paris motor show on Tuesday 2nd October.

The hybrid is a new addition alongside petrol versions of the CR-V that were revealed at the Geneva motor show in March.

When the petrol-electric model goes on sale in early 2019, it will be the brand’s first hybrid SUV on the European market.

Honda will offer the hybrid in both front and all-wheel-drive versions, with a combined power output of 184hp. The front-wheel-drive variant offers combined cycle fuel economy of 53.3mpg and CO2 emissions of 120g/km, the all-wheel-drive version 51.4mpg and 126g/km.

These figures will make the hybrid CR-V a direct contender against diesel models from rival manufacturers, such as the Volkswagen Tiguan and Skoda Kodiaq.

An intelligent control unit, dubbed i-MMD, automatically switches between three driving modes – EV Drive, Hybrid Drive and Engine Drive to make the most of the hybrid SUV’s economy and performance.

   

Among other versions of the CR-V on display in Paris will be petrol-powered models and a new seven-seater option.

The petrol version will be the first on sale later in 2018 – it uses a 1.5-litre turbo engine with either six-speed manual or CVT transmission. Prices will range from £25,995.

Honda will also reveal a mid-life revamp for its HR-V SUV in Paris. Updates to the exterior styling and the interior feature, along with the addition of a number of latest technologies.

When it goes on sale, the HR-V will be offered with a 1.5-litre petrol engine, which will be joined in Spring 2019 by a turbo version and a 1.6-litre diesel.
